Brownie Cupcakes:

Vanilla Frosting:




  • Preheat oven to 325°F and line cupcake pan with liners.
  • In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips and butter. Microwave on high at 30-second intervals, stirring in between until completely melted and smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar, and vanilla until well mixed.
  • Slowly add egg mix to the chocolate mix, whisking well.
  • Slowly add in flour and mix until smooth.
  • Add batter to cupcake liners, filling them about ⅔ full. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick comes clean from the center.
  • Let cool in pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.


  • Add ingredients to a large bowl or stand mixer and beat on medium-high speed with whisk attachments until light and fluffy.
  • Use an ice cream scoop to scoop the frosting onto the cooled brownies.
  • Top with toppings and enjoy!


  • Best served the same day they are frosted.
  • This recipe makes a lot of frosting due to filling the ice cream scoop, if you want to do a basic piping, use just 2 cups heavy cream, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and 1/3 cup pudding mix.
